Starling Emerging Leaders Fund A Project of Campus Life

Continuing a Legacy, Supporting Leaders

During her time as a student at Towson and employee of Campus Recreation Services, Jennifer DeVries '91/'97 developed a love for campus recreation based on her experiences as a participant as a student at TU and as a Campus Recreation employee at multiple institutions. Ms. DeVries died after a battle with cancer in 2012, but her legacy lives on at TU through the Starling Emerging Leaders Fund.

How Can You Help?

Ms. DeVries' friend and Towson University alumna, Tamara Jarrett '91, established a fund in her honor, providing professional development opportunities for Campus Recreation Services staff. Your gift will help those students and professionals travel to conferences, seminars, workshops and symposiums that offer specialized education and certifications in the various fields of campus recreation administration.
